Xavisus Tyrone Gayden (born September 8, 1979), professionally known as XG, is an African American artist of trap, record producer, songwriter, and audio engineer from Houston, Texas. He has recently released singles titled Gym Juice and Boss Shit. He has also released collaborative projects with artists including Lords of Aggression, and Phenomena Da Gr8t, and Phoe-Reel.

Early life XG spent his time in sports, working, and church growing up with his uncle and aunts. He started singing in church and later discovered rap in elementary performing in school events.

XG was a part of the church choir for a few years then he became a lead singer which turned things around. It wasn’t until middle school, where he started writing rap lyrics and performing songs amongst his friends. XG also gravitated towards the piano during choir practice and became one of the top tenors in his school. Upon graduation he was awarded a scholarship in music and took a turn by joining the Marines. Career XG became a Marine and was stationed in Japan where he became a local DJ and producer.

He managed and produced his artists Phoe-Reel, and JASE, three Marines stationed with him aboard Camp Schwab. He also produced artists such as Real Boy, Hectic Gee, and Bully the Bad Guy. XG’s keen eye for talent landed them stage performances with Trina, Chingy and the Get it Boys, Goodie Mob and Rich Boy.

As XG transitioned back to the United States he was introduced to new artists in  Twentynine Palms, California where he opened his first recording studio. During 3 deployment to Iraq, XG assisted the military marketing team aboard Twentynine Palms in creating a military talent show. This talent show is still surviving today. He also started his group called De2our, which only lasted a year with his partner Lyrical.

After the release of The Way You Move, De2our went their separate ways and XG started his solo project Hatter Blockers. The solo project was never released and later XG started a new recording studio in San Diego, which lasted a year before closing due to another bad partnership.

In 2019, XG retired from the military and decided to focus on his music. XG attended The Recording Arts Center at Studio West February 2020 and graduated February 2021. He then released his first single in April 2021 entitled Boss Shit and then his second single followed it up in May of 2021.
